Ridiculosities in Beer

After much debate and rigorous screening by the European Patent Office, the brewers of German brand F**king Hell Beer have won the right to market their product. The Mayor of the village of F**ing, where the lager is manufactured, explains the bizarre name is understood to come from a sixth century noble called Lord Focko, with 'ing' being old German for 'family of'. Says brewery spokesman Stefan Fellenberg, "I don't understand why the patents office think of something else. They must have dirty minds." [UKS]
